This is a special rosé for us. Firstly its a rosé with flavour, think good french rosé from Tavel, Marsannay, and the south of France. Secondly it combines all four Burgundy varieties, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Gamay and Aligoté. Each variety must offer something and they all do. The Pinot Noir and Chardonnay come from Cordilera vineyard in Macclesfield, the Gamay and Aligoté from Whitfield in the King Valley.

A structured rosé that can be chilled or drank as a light red.

Pinot noir, chardonnay, gamay, aligote! Ahoy! “Inspired by Sylvain Pataille or anyone else that doesn?t produce flavourless rose”, says the back label.

Flavourtown. In the vogue of Lopez de Heredia or Clos Cibonne. So much going on here. Saline minerality. Oxidative notes. Skinsy chew and pucker. Tart, red berry fruitiness. Almond savouriness. Layers of flavour and texture, spikes of acidity, savoury edges and a bright, lively finish. Edgy wine, no doubt, but awesome.

Producers notes

At Terrason we specialise in not just making wine but importing from small Domaines in France. We aren’t chasing producers from any particular region, rather we are tasting through cellars and choosing the wines we love and the people we  have a connection with. All our producers are certified organic and make natural/honest wines. Expect to see varieties your not familiar with such as Ploussard, Savignin, Aligoté and even a little Cesar.

Our Yarra Valley and King Valley wines are all made from purchased fruit in the tradition of a negoce. Our growers run what the French call “lutte raisonnée” viticulture or “reasoned struggle”. The choices made must always be carried out with the vineyards health, longevity and sustainability in mind. Our wines don’t masquerade as something they are not and they are best described as “traditional”.
